The White Dragon
by Devin Harris

A thousand radiant white lights
Each one a shining scale
Lay upon its body
Like a suit of sparkling mail
A row of gleaming diamond spikes
Bristle on its tail
Its wings are spun with pure moonlight
Each one a frosted sail
An agile creature of the air
Its body slim and lithe
Its fangs are ivory daggers
Each claw, a crystal scythe
It breathes a cloud of milk-white flames
Into the pitch-black night
And soars across the starry skies
A captivating sight
